MoCI reduces prices of over 500 consumer goods for Ramadan
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) on Friday announced the list of consumer goods that will be sold at a discounted price for the holy month of Ramadan.
Starting from Saturday until the end of the holy month, more than 500 products will be sold at a discounted price, the MoCI said.
The annual initiative comes in the framework of the ministry’s keenness to meet citizens and residents needs of consumer goods at reduced prices during the holy month, when spending on those items is higher.
The initiative covers basic products consumed during Ramadan such as flour, sugar, rice, pasta, chicken, oil, milk, and other food and non-food items who see relatively higher demand during Ramadan.
The ministry said in a statement that it agreed with all suppliers on the type of products that see increased demands during the holly month in order to have sufficient supply at suitable prices.
The list has been circulated on the major supermarkets and consumers can access it through the ministry's website.
The ministry noted that it will firmly confront any negligence in terms of the commitments mentioned in the consumer protection law and its executive regulations, adding that it will intensify inspections for any violations to protect consumer rights.
The ministry called on consumers to report any violations by phone on 16001, email on infomoci.gov.qa, and Twitter handle MOCIQATAR.
